UFC Philadelphia poster released
Two of the UFC’s baddest lightweights face off on the official poster for the promotion’s upcoming trip to Philadelphia.
Combined, Barboza and Gaethje own 28 career knockouts and both are coming off of KO victories. Barboza put a prolonged beatdown on Dan Hooker at UFC on FOX 31 before finishing in round three, and Gaethje needed less than 90 seconds to punch out James Vick at UFC Lincoln.
The bout order is still to be determined, but a fight between strawweight contenders Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Michelle Waterson is also booked for the March 30 show, which will air its main card live on ESPN.
